The New "Chicken Leg" Murder

  • Police say a Chicago man faces murder charges for allegedly killing another man as they played games on an Xbox 360.

    Twenty-eight-year-old Joseph Johnson was charged with first-degree murder on Sunday.

    Authorities say Johnson and 24-year-old Danny Taylor were playing video games at a South Side apartment earlier this month when they got into a fight. Johnson then allegedly shot Taylor in the back of the head.
Initial reports are they were playing "Guitar Hero." Other stories are "Super Mario Carts" or a "Zelda" type game. We're sure that Johnson had a perfectly acceptable reason for his actions and we look forward to hearing it in court.

(A) It's Mario, not Mairo
.
(B) The exact quote is "..."Super Mario Carts" or a "Zelda" type game
.
(C) It's Sarcasm and Silliness you idiot. It wouldn't be nearly as humorous if it was Call to Duty or Medal of Honor.

Ah, how life has cheapened in only one short generation (Two generations, in some parts of our metropolis)

In '69 it was a murder over a pork chop in Fillmore.

Now the going price is only a chicken leg?

If im not mistaken it wasnt a chicken leg it was a porkchop. I believe it was in englewood maybe 7-8 yrs ago and it involved two brothers arguing over the last porkchop that momma made. These stories get passed down over the years and turn into urban legends alomst since they get changed around so much. But just ask an old timer they remeber.

The media said the game was "call of duty", maybe the guy was "camping" or "glitching" while playing online, ask any hardcore gamer and they would tell you what that means lol That could cause gamers to get violent lol

My old partner, JPMc (RIP) used to remind me every year of what he referred to around Thanksgiving as the... "Drumstick Massacre." We would both review the daily Chicago rags on the Friday after the 'bird-day' for (pre-chalkie) stories about individuals who were shot or killed after eating the last piece of turkey, greens or polishing off the last scoop of the macaroni and cheese, a true thanksgiving delicacy.
The one that we used to laugh about annually was the one about 'Uncle Will' who allegedly never came around da' crib since he was paroled fo' years ago and had the balls to show up at his play-aunties house and not only ate like a German Shepherd, he ate the last available piece of turkey, a "MF Drumstick" so the designated family member popped a cap in his ass, killing the dude, thus the... "Drumstick Massacre!"
Aaah, Poultry Probable Cause!

What a scene. Must have stopped conversation in the room cold for a minute or two.

Reminds me of the party up in Evanston some years back where they were playing Russian Roulette and a guy lost.

DUH!!! They were playing Deer Hunter and he accidentaly grabbed the wrong gun and accidentaly shot his long time childhood friend. It's a tragic story really but since there was no intent and this is crook county, involuntariy manslaughter and two years probation.

"We playin' essbos and muthafucka woo woo woo, you know, he be messin' wid me. I TOL' him don' you be doin' dat. He do it agin an' I cap his ass, know whum sayin'."

That will be Joseph Johnson's life story. He will repeat it over and over and over again down through the years, until even the concrete walls surrounding him go deaf.

Stop the violence.

Amen.
